The Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is the sixth release of our Crayères Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. 2015 was an exceptional vintage with a very long time (more than two months) between véraison and harvest. It is a classic example of cool climate Cabernet Sauvignon from the Limestone Coast, with bright cassis and blackberry flavours, and a linear tannin profile.The 2014 growing season was very challenging in the beginning, with cool and humid weather around flowering and severe heatwaves in January and early February; however, the growing season finished with very mild and warm conditions, with on average 8 weeks between véraison and harvest for all varieties. The Heat Degree days summation (calculated as the sum of the monthly daily mean minus 10°C for October to April included) was estimated at 1,414 degree days, which is lower than the average for Saint Emilion (1,530 degree days). One striking feature of the 2014 vintage was a very good and uniform set in all varieties, leading to a very harmonious and slow ripening at the end of the season. As a result, the fruit had great colour and amazing tannins and flavours.
